It adds, “The investment comes as Vodafone prepares for the launch of ultra-fast 4G services by the end of the summer. Having spent £802m securing the widest portfolio of available spectrum in the recent Ofcom auction, Vodafone is well advanced with preparations for the next generation of mobile internet services. Vodafone has already pledged to deliver indoor coverage to 98% of the UK population by 2015.”

“This investment is great news for customers and further evidence of our commitment to deliver our best ever network. We’re bringing together the best of mobile and fixed communications to help our business customers make their communications work for them. For consumers, it’s another important step towards the arrival of our ultra-fast 4G service later this year. It is also great news for the country. We’re investing in vital national infrastructure that can help play an important role in supporting growth in the wider economy,” said Vodafone CEO Guy Laurence.
